The Toronto Blue Jays are coming off a rough showing in which they were defeated by the Cleveland Guardians in 1-0 fashion. The Jays pitching staff did everything possible to keep the offense in the game, but there just wasn't anything there. Fortunately, the first-place Orioles lost on Tuesday as well, so the Blue Jays' seven-game deficit in the AL East race remains untouched.

Probable starting pitchers

  • For the Blue Jays, AL Cy Young contender Kevin Gausman is gearing up to make his 23rd start of the season. The right-hander currently leads the majors in FIP with a 2.79 and leads the American League in strikeouts with 177. Through 132 innings of work, the 32-year-old is 8-6 with a 3.20 ERA and 129 ERA+. With the latest injury news out of Shane McClanahan's camp, Gausman is looking better and better to bring home a Cy Young Award at season's end.
  • Stop me if you think you've heard this before, but the Guardians are going to be sending a rookie to the mound to start tonight's contest. This time around, it's going to be left-handed pitcher Logan Allen, who has looked sharp through the first 16 starts of his big league career. The 24-year-old is 5-4 with a 3.65 ERA, 3.95 FIP and 115 ERA+ through just over 86 innings of work this year.
